(SRB) AWARD LEVELS FOR ACTIVE COMPONENT AND RESERVE COMPONENT FULL TIME 
SUPPORT (FTS) AND SUPERSEDES REF A.  INCREASED AWARD LEVELS ARE 
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY AND DECREASES ARE EFFECTIVE 30 DAYS FROM RELEASE 
OF THIS MESSAGE.
2.  WHILE THE SRB PROGRAM CONTINUES TO BE THE NAVY'S PRIMARY MONETARY 
INCENTIVE TO ENCOURAGE SAILORS WITH CRITICAL SKILLS AND VALUABLE 
EXPERIENCE TO STAY NAVY, IT IS INCUMBENT UPON THE NAVY TO REMAIN WITHIN 
CONGRESSIONALLY AUTHORIZED FUNDING LIMITS.  
ADDITIONALLY, SRB IS USED TO HELP MINIMIZE OVER-EXECUTION OR UNDER- 
EXECUTION OF CRITICAL SKILL RETENTION GOALS.  THEREFORE, AS 
REENLISTMENT GOALS FOR PARTICULAR SKILLS ARE ACHIEVED, SRB AWARD LEVELS 
FOR THOSE SKILLS WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE PLAN, BUT NO EARLIER THAN 30 
DAYS FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF THIS NAVADMIN.  
NAVADMINS WILL BE RELEASED AS SKILLS ARE REMOVED FROM THE PLAN; HOWEVER, 
THIS NAVADMIN CONSTITUTES THE 30-DAY NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENT SET BY 
DOD POLICY FOR ANY SKILL SUBSEQUENTLY REMOVED FROM THE PROGRAM.  
SAILORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SRB AS SOON AS ELIGIBILITY 
REQUIREMENTS HAVE BEEN MET ACCORDING TO THIS NAVADMIN AND REFS B AND C.
3.  ALL SRB SKILLS FOR FY10 HAVE BEEN EVALUATED AND PLACED IN ONE OF 
THREE TIERS.  VARYING AWARD LEVELS AND EARLY REENLISTMENT OPPORTUNITIES 
HAVE BEEN PROVIDED FOR EACH TIER.  SAILORS SERVING IN TIER ONE SKILLS, 
AS WELL AS THE EXCEPTIONS OUTLINED IN REF B, PARA 12.A AND REF C, PARA 
4 ARE ELIGIBLE TO REENLIST EARLY ANY TIME WITHIN THE FISCAL YEAR OF 
THEIR EAOS.  NUCLEAR SAILORS MAY STILL CROSS FISCAL YEAR BOUNDARIES.  
SAILORS SERVING IN TIER TWO OR TIER THREE SKILLS WHO RECEIVED AN EARLY 
PROMOTE ON THEIR MOST RECENT REGULAR PERIODIC EVALUATION REPORT MAY 
ALSO REENLIST ANY TIME WITHIN THE FISCAL YEAR PRIOR TO THEIR EAOS (SEE 
PARA 6 FOR MORE DETAILS AND GUIDELINES).  ALL OTHER SAILORS IN TIER TWO 
AND TIER THREE SKILLS MAY REENLIST UP TO 90 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF THEIR 
EAOS AS DIRECTED IN REF C.  ALL SAILORS, REGARDLESS OF SKILL TIER MUST 
MEET ALL ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA UNDER PARA 9 AND MUST SUBMIT

REENLIST EARLY ANY TIME WITHIN THE FISCAL YEAR OF THEIR EAOS.  NO 
TRANSFER, CONCURRENT, OR SPECIAL EVALUATIONS WILL APPLY.  SAILORS 
ADVANCED WITHIN THE 12-MONTHS PRIOR TO THEIR EAOS, WILL BE ALLOWED TO 
SUBSTITUTE THE LAST REGULAR PERIODIC EVALUATION OR FITNESS REPORT IN 
THEIR PREVIOUS PAY GRADE.  
PERSONNEL MUST FAX OR EMAIL A SIGNED COPY OF THE EVALUATION TO
PERS-811 ONCE THEIR PRECERT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED.  THIS REQUIREMENT IS 
ONLY FOR THOSE THAT FALL UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH.
7.  THE FOLLOWING GUIDANCE IS PROVIDED ON NAVY ENLISTED CLASSIFICATION 
(NEC) SPECIFIC SRB AND LATERAL CONVERSIONS.  
ACCEPTANCE OF AN NEC-SPECIFIC SRB CONTRACT INDICATES AN AGREEMENT 
BETWEEN THE SAILOR AND THE NAVY TO UTILIZE SKILLS ATTRIBUTED TO THE NEC 
DURING THE SAILOR'S ENLISTMENT TO MEET FLEET READINESS REQUIREMENTS.  
IN SUBSEQUENT TOURS, A SAILOR MUST BE WILLING TO BE DETAILED DURING THE 
NORMAL PROJECTED ROTATION DATE WINDOW TO AN AVAILABLE BILLET WITHIN THE 
SRB CONTRACTED NEC, CONSISTENT WITH SEA-SHORE FLOW REQUIREMENTS.  
LATERAL CONVERSIONS MUST FOLLOW REF B, PARA 12.D.  LATERAL CONVERSION 
REQUESTS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED MORE THAN NINE MONTHS BEFORE THE EAOS.  
CONVERSIONS TO A RATE WITH A LOWER AWARD LEVEL WILL NOT BE APPROVED.  
PERSONNEL IN A "CLOSED-LOOP" NEC CAN REENLIST BY THE NEC ONLY.
8.  PERFORM-TO-SERVE (PTS) REQUIREMENTS.  AN SRB REQUEST FOR A SAILOR 
WHO REQUIRES PTS APPROVAL MUST BE SUBMITTED AFTER THE SAILOR HAS BEEN 
OFFICIALLY NOTIFIED OF PTS APPROVAL.  
9.  REENLISTMENT PROCEDURES.  SAILORS MAY REQUEST TO REENLIST EARLY FOR 
SRB SO LONG AS THEIR EAOS IS WITHIN THE CURRENT FISCAL YEAR AND IS NOT 
LATER THAN 90 DAYS FROM THE REQUESTED DATE OF REENLISTMENT.  SEE PARA 6 
OF THIS NAVADMIN; REF B, PARA 12.A; AND REF C, PARA 4 FOR EXCEPTIONS TO 
THIS POLICY.  OTHER POLICIES AND ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES IN REFS A 
AND B AND THE DEFENSE JOINT MILITARY PAY SYSTEM (DJMS) PROCEDURES 
TRAINING GUIDE REMAIN IN EFFECT.  
10.  OBLIGATED SERVICE TO TRAIN (OTT) AND THEN REENLIST.  SEE REF B, 
PARA 12.E. FOR OTT GUIDANCE.  REQUESTS ARE TO BE SUBMITTED TO
PERS-811 VIA NAVPERS 1306/7, ENLISTED PERSONNEL ACTION REQUEST.  
A COPY OF THE AUTHORIZATION MESSAGE SHOULD BE RETAINED BY THE SAILOR 
UNTIL THE SRB REENLISTMENT ON GRADUATION DAY FROM THE COURSE OF 
INSTRUCTION.  USE CODE 1CC (1RC FOR FTS) FOR OTT SRB REQUESTS IN OPINS.
11.  COMMAND RESPONSIBILITIES AND PROCEDURES.
    A.  COMMANDS MUST SUBMIT SRB REQUESTS VIA OPINS 35-120 DAYS IN 
ADVANCE OF THE SAILOR'S EAOS OR REENLISTMENT DATE TO ENSURE THE 
APPROVAL OR DISAPPROVAL MESSAGE WILL REACH THE SAILOR'S COMMAND AND THE 
DEFENSE FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING SERVICE (DFAS) BEFORE THE REENLISTMENT 
DATE.  TIMELINESS IS CRITICAL BECAUSE THE  APPROVED PRECERT NOTIFIES 
THE DJMS OF THE SAILOR'S INTENT TO REENLIST, PREVENTS INTERRUPTION OF 
PAY, AND ENSURES THE INITIAL SRB PAYMENT POSTS TO THE SAILOR'S ACCOUNT.  
ANY CHANGES TO THE APPROVAL MAY CAUSE ERRORS AND SLOW PAYMENTS.  AS A 
RESULT, CHANGES SHOULD BE PREVENTED.  REQUESTS SUBMITTED LESS THAN 35 
DAYS PRIOR TO THE REENLISTMENT DATE WITHOUT SUBSTANTIAL JUSTIFICATION 
WILL BE REJECTED.  SAILORS MUST HAVE APPROVED PRECERTS BEFORE 
REENLISTING.  THE SERVICING PERSONNEL OFFICE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR 
VERIFYING THE REENLISTMENT, POSTING THE CONTRACT, RELEASING THE FIRST 
PAYMENT, AND VERIFYING THE MASTER MILITARY PAY ACCOUNT.
    B.  COMMANDS INITIATING SRB PRECERT REQUESTS MUST ENSURE ALL OF THE 
DATA INCLUDED IN THE PRECERT REQUEST IS CORRECT AND THE SAILOR IS 
ELIGIBLE TO REENLIST FOR THE REQUESTED SRB.  THE SRB REQUEST SHALL NOT 
BE ENTERED INTO OPINS UNTIL THE COMMANDING OFFICER HAS APPROVED THE 
REENLISTMENT REQUEST.
    C.  SAILORS WITH APPROVED PRECERTS WHO DO NOT REENLIST ON THE DATE 
OR FOR THE TERM SPECIFIED IN THE PRECERT MESSAGE MUST HAVE THEIR 
COMMAND CONTACT PERS-811D TO INITIATE A REENLISTMENT CANCELLATION TO 
AVOID PLACING SAILORS IN AN OVERPAID STATUS.
12.  INOPERATIVE EXTENSIONS POLICY.  IN KEEPING WITH DOD POLICY, 
PERSONNEL WHO ACCEPTED AN ENLISTMENT BONUS FOR EXTENDED ENLISTMENT 
(EBEE), AS REFLECTED ON THEIR NAVCRUIT 1133/52, WILL NO LONGER BE 
AUTHORIZED TO USE THIS INOPERATIVE EXTENSION TIME IN THE SRB 
CALCULATION.  SAILORS WHO HAVE INOPERATIVE EXTENSION TIME THROUGH A 5YO 
OR 6YO PROGRAM, OR AS AUTHORIZED IN NAVADMIN 007/09, MAY CONTINUE TO 
HAVE A MAXIMUM OF 24 MONTHS OF INOPERATIVE EXTENSION TIME NOT COUNT 
AGAINST THE CALCULATION OF SRB PROVIDED THE REENLISTMENT RESULTS IN A 
NEW EAOS THAT IS AT LEAST 24 MONTHS DAY-FOR-DAY PAST THE CURRENT 
EXTENDED EAOS.  
THIS CALCULATION IS PERFORMED AUTOMATICALLY BY PERS-811.  LOCAL 
COMMANDS ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO CANCEL EXTENSIONS FOR THE PURPOSE OF 
IMMEDIATE SRB REENLISTMENTS.  COMMANDS MUST VERIFY AND ANNOTATE ON THE 
PRECERT REQUEST WHETHER ANY INOPERATIVE EXTENSION TIME NOTED IS PART OF 
AN EBEE CONTRACT.
13.  PRECERT REQUIREMENTS.  THE FOLLOWING ARE REQUIRED WHEN SUBMITTING 
PRECERT REQUESTS:
    A.  TO VALIDATE AN INOPERATIVE EXTENSION OF ENLISTMENT AND EXPEDITE 
PROCESSING OF AN SRB REQUEST, INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING IN THE REMARKS 
PARAGRAPH OF THE REQUEST:  TERM, NARRATIVE REASON, AUTHORITY, AND 
EXECUTION DATE OF ALL INOPERATIVE EXTENSIONS.  
FAILURE TO VERIFY EXTENSIONS WILL CAUSE PROCESSING DELAYS AND MAY 
RESULT IN REJECTION OF THE REQUEST OR AN APPROVAL AT A LOWER AMOUNT.
    B.  SAILORS MUST OBTAIN AN APPROVAL FOR EXTENSION FROM PERS
811 IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE THE POTENTIAL FOR LOSS OF SRB ELIGIBILITY.
14.  LITTORAL COMBAT SHIP (LCS) GUIDANCE.  SAILORS ASSIGNED TO LCS 
PLATFORMS OR WITH ORDERS TO AN LCS PLATFORM WHO POSSESS AN NEC 
SPECIFICALLY REQUIRED FOR LCS ASSIGNMENT (I.E., HYBRID
SAILORS) ARE AUTHORIZED TO REENLIST FOR THE MORE LUCRATIVE SRB- 
ELIGIBLE NEC, REGARDLESS OF ASSIGNED RATING.
15.  TO ENSURE THAT ALL REQUIREMENTS AND TIMELINES ARE MET, VISIT THE 
FOLLOWING SRB PAGE OF THE NPC
WEBSITE: WWW.NPC.NAVY.MIL/CAREERINFO/PAYANDBENEFITS/N130/N130D
16.  POINT OF CONTACT FOR A SAILOR WHO HAS REENLISTED AND HAS NOT 
RECEIVED THEIR SRB PAYMENT, OR HAS QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE TAXATION OF 
THEIR SRB AND ANNUAL INSTALLMENTS, IS THE SAILOR'S SERVICING PAY OFFICE 
OR PSD.  SRB TAX INFO IS ALSO DISCUSSED IN DODFMR VOL 7A, CH 44, TABLE 
44-1, RULE 7.  THE POINT OF CONTACT FOR A SAILOR WITH QUESTIONS 
REGARDING THE SRB PROGRAM OR ANY INFORMATION ON THEIR BUPERS-ON-LINE 
ACCOUNT IS THEIR COMMAND CAREER COUNSELOR (CCC).  FOR TECHNICAL 
QUESTIONS OR CLARIFICATIONS, CCCS, NOT THE INDIVIDUAL SAILORS, ARE 
ENCOURAGED TO CONTACT PERS-811D AT (901) 874-2526/DSN 882, FAX (901) 
874-2623/DSN 882 OR E-MAIL EMCM(SS) IRISH AT 
DOUGLAS.B.IRISH(AT)NAVY.MIL OR MR. FRANK PALOMO AT 
FRANCISCO.PALOMO(AT)NAVY.MIL. 
17.  WE WILL CONTINUE TO ASSESS RETENTION BEHAVIOR AND ADJUST SRB AWARD 
LEVELS ACCORDINGLY.
